Enjoy the “Looking Up” series below, inspired by the giant sequoia forests and other forest hikes.
Walking in the woods beneath green summer trees or evergreens gives me a feeling of joy and peacefulness, of being a small part of something tremendously beautiful, and all being right in the world. The light of the forest floats down through the trees. The fresh smells of plants and earth fill the clean air. I can hear birdsong, my own feet snapping twigs, and small animals rustling leaves on the ground. I’m fascinated by the dramatic angles of tall trees zooming up into the sky.
This series is born of my lifelong love of trees, and my aim is to transport the viewer into the peaceful and magical realm of the forest.
Bare branches in winter skies, blossoms in springtime, and interesting explorations of trees, the sky, and light.
Autumn in the northern hemisphere is arguably the most beautiful time of year, a time of vivid and obvious transformation. The branches of the trees are a wet-looking charcoal gray against the bright colors of the changing leaves. The air has the slightest bite of cold to it. The sky is bright and gray at the same time, and just a little stormy.
